Nine days of free art, music, performances and talks to celebrate the opening of our new building.

Join us for a free program of exciting events and cultural experiences as we celebrate the opening of Sydney’s newest landmark – the Art Gallery of New South Wales’ stunning new building, designed by award-winning architects SANAA.

A huge range of performances, talks, tours and workshops is set to bring many forms of art to life. Highlights include a concert in the Domain headlined by Grammy-nominated international pop star Ellie Goulding, supported by Australian artists Meg Mac and Electric Fields; a nightly drone show over Woolloomooloo Bay created by Kamilaroi artist Reko Rennie; and a series of conversations with artists, creatives and thought leaders held at the Art Gallery.
